Rosemary's Root Beer Tonic

Categories: Beverages, Natural, Vegetarian
Yield: 4 servings

3 oz Sassafras Bark, dried
2 oz Sarsaparilla, dried
1 oz Dandelion Root, dried
1 oz Burdock Root, dried
1/2 oz Ground Ginger
1/2 oz Ground Cinnamon
1/4 oz Orange Peel, dried

This sweet, bracing drink from Rosemary Gladstar Slick is reminiscent of old-fashioned root beer, due to the sassafras. It has a cleansing, revivifying effect from the dandelion, burdock and sarsaparilla.

Mix together all ingredients and store in a tightly closed container.

In a large pot combine 1 quart of water and 4 tablespoons of dry mixture. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

Strain and sweeten with honey or stevia (also called "sweet herb") if desired.

Makes about 4 cups

Variation: For iced tea, chill the simmered mixture, then dilute it with 1 quart of sparkling water. Serve over ice with a twist of orange peel.
